Are you guys perfectly okay with a story about bug people?

My story is full of alcohol, war, suffering, sex, politics and history. I do not think buggies will bug others ;)

I think they are cool. Sure a lot of people fear bugs but I think is not the same as when seeing them in art.

Bugs are not that common in our fandom, and making a comic about them is sure to get a lot of attention. I like the idea. Anthropomorphizing insects will also make real life insects more appealing to people when they are reminded of your work, so they will be less terrifying to many.

I definitely support you.

I feel that we should never discriminate from any type of insects or animals because we all have a story as all I can say is it shouldn't matter if it is an insect or not only if the story is worth reading.

Personcl udingally, I welcome media that stars non-humans, including bugs.

I think it will see less success than if it were not bugs.

Personally I would be less inclined to check it out under the pretense that bugs are the theme than if it were fluffy animal people.

But that's just me, and I'm just a single person so I don't know.

Hippos. Walri. Street Sharks. The Yowies. Things I like specifically because they're unattractive. I personally think it would be nice to see some unattractive heroes in Media.

We don't get many stories, but we secretly control the world so that's not a problem.

I worry to much to be frank, but I'm in the middle of working a comic strip series about a cricket, a katydid, and a grasshopper that form a band in a garden.


Know a few folks aren't really into bugs.or are scared to death by them so that discourages me a little.

It all depends on the skill of the Writer, in creating a plausible world/society where the insects and their society/environment are entertaining to read about.

I, for one, always wanted to know more about the inner-mechanics of the Arachnids, from the 'Starship Troopers' movie(s) (and the vastly superior book that started it all).

Honestly, this sounds like a great idea. I'm all for anything that veers beyond the usual foxes, wolves, cats and *cough* dogs when it comes to characters. Might put off a few individuals, but imagine a story like that would stand out enough to make up for that.

Hope you stick with it - bugs don't seem to get enough love around here.
